Kim’s sculpture is far from traditional. Like most of her creations, it’s made primarily from prefabricated metal downspouts. This time, they’re arranged in a tight circle, and each is painted a single bright color and bent at the top. The result is bright, playful and contemporary, while retaining the solidity that characterizes pre-modern sculpture. “Sun Burst” suggests motion without moving.

Kim said she was inspired by utilitarian materials like car parts and downspouts after she had a serious car accident and saw perfectly good parts strewn around a junkyard. She decided to use them for her art. She wants her pieces to be admired while also addressing important topics like feminism.
